We are often asked: What makes our actuators different? What is a Flat Yoke? or How does a Rack and Gear Actuator differ from a Rack and Pinion actuator? Also customers that are not as familiar with QTRCO are curious how we achieve such quick cycle times, and how do I change the fail position. So we have compiled a list of questions that are frequently asked.
Offset cylinders align the piston axis with the pinion gear pitch circle diameter, eliminating the cantilever forces inherent in rack and pinion type actuators. Low friction rollers maintain correct engagement of the stainless steel gearing for absolutely exceptional cycle life.
